It wasn't unpopular - we just lack writers (you are welcome to volunteer for writing duty ) Ben was doing them but life got out of hand for a while and this is one of the things that got put on the backburner.
If I could write, I sure would. I know people really enjoyed this particular section. We should make the person from the prior month interview the person for the next month and then write about them. HAHA Just kidding, that would be terrible. I don't have a solution - was just wondering where it had gone and I think other people do too. Thanks for the response.
I am back now to having a little more time and I would like to start that again - the issue is as mentioned above just one of time (and my lack of it). Thanks for letting us know thta it is something that people liked - that make sit easier for me to try to prioritize and make sure in the event of too little time we choose correctly which things fall aside.
There was a lot (!!) of response to those member spotlight things and although I don't think it drove traffic to the site it was something that people who are already here really loved a lot. The "views" and comments on those were pretty high and people talked about them behind these scenes as well. I think it was overall something we were really into. NO PRESSURE hahaha It's not like we think y'all ain't got anything else to do.
I like the member spotlight, as well. I would like to volunteer as an interviewer or subject or any other position that is needed if the project gets started up again. It is interesting to get to know more about the members of the site.
Yes - I agree. I will be happy to do a member spotlight for November- but please send in recommendations soon soon--
Message them to Freya or me directly, or in a new thread in letters to admin, or by chat private message. Only way to have your nomination considered will be if they come in direct message to Freya or me, or in Letter to Admin. Member spotlight nominees must have joined the forum in September 2017 or earlier and can be any member of forum- no restrictions about pro/staff/regular members.
We will end nominations Sunday night (19th November , evening US Time) and ask members for permission to do article on them in order of number of nominations/drawing if a tie. I am sorry for the short time period to nominate- just need time left in month to do also.
I am back to being here on daily basis so long as health holds up we will begin trying to do on a regular monthly or near monthly basis again.
Yes , I have a member spotlight candidate- they were chosen end November and I intended to put up in December but then we decided to kick off new Year on monthly or quarterly. Will be a spotlight post up in next week along with details of quarterly or monthly going forward.
